Passionate about storytelling, I have been lucky to perform on stages and screens around the world. I love working with new writing, R&Ds and script readings at all stages of the process. I am approaching 20 years as a member of Equity and Spotlight.
Screen credits include THE SPLIT (BBC), CASUALTY (BBC), SECOND GENERATION (CHANNEL 4), NEW TRICKS (BBC), THE CHILDREN ACT (BBC FILMS/STUDIOCANAL), FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL (MGM/UNIVERSAL/HULU). I recently recorded BBC radio-play DETENTE and video games ZOMBIES!RUN and HARRY POTTER (ELECTRONIC ARTS).
Theatre credits include: The Lovely Bones (Birmingham Rep/UK Tour), Satyagraha (Improbable/LA Opera), Engine Brake (Bristol Old Vic/New Diorama/Salisbury Playhouse/Plymouth Drum) and touring my award-winning one-woman show, 'An Arrangement of Shoes' written by Abhishek Majumdar (Tara Theatre, Edinburgh Fringe, Vancouver Fringe winning 'Pick of the fringe').
A multi-instrumentalist, I drum with anti-folk band 'Extradition Order'.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Radhika the renaissance woman: even after 6 months of working with her in an ensemble I continue to be surprised; not only a supremely fine actor and kind generous soul, she’s a singer, composer, punk rocker, mathematician, statistician, technician, puppeteer, philosopher, comedienne and cook. I only know this because these skills come in handy when you’re making a show. She blows your mind."
Melly Still, Theatre Director
"I was looking for a teenager who had to give birth on screen for my first episode of “Casualty”. Radhika walked in to the room and it was immediately clear she had to play the part. She looked like a total one off, with purple hair, biker’s leather jacket, a chipper attitude and winning smile. My Producer agreed to let her keep the punk vibe, which suited the character anyway. After shocking her and the other two who played her boyfriend and brother by making them watch a video of a live birth, she gave me 100% on set and stole all her scenes! Thanks Radhika!!"
John Dower, TV and Mocap Director
